South African cricketer Faf du Plessis has pulled out of the ongoing sixth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) following a concussion he suffered during a Quetta Gladiators’ match against Peshawar Zalmi on Sunday.
His side – Gladiators – tweeted that the South African batsman would not take any further part in the tournament.
“Gladiator @faf1307 will not be able to take further part in @thePSLt20 after a nasty collision earlier in the tournament. The star batsman will be flying back to South Africa. We wish the legend all the best & hope he gets back on the field soon,” the franchise tweeted.
Notably, du Plessis had collided with his teammate Mohammad Hasnain while trying to stop a boundary and was later taken to a hospital here for scans.
du Plessis had later posted a message on Twitter, saying he had “some memory loss” after the incident.
“Thank you everyone for all the messages of support. I’m back at the hotel recovering. Have concussion with some memory loss but I will be fine,” he had tweeted.
